OSCON 2009 Keynotes (#oscon)
ROSE Blog: Rikki's Open Source Exchange
Two women will give OSCON keynotes this year. Alison Randall will give the Welcome on Wednesday, July 22 (9a.m. in Exhibit Hall 3).
On Thursday, July 23, Infotrope's Kirrily Robert will talk about Standing Out in the Crowd (9a.m. in Exhibit Hall 3). The OSCON site says:
What’s it like to be a woman in an open source project that’s 99% men? What’s it like to be a woman in a project that’s 75%... women?
Kirrily Robert, who has worked on both kinds of projects, will talk about the differences, and what we can learn from majority-female open source projects.
Kirrily is also the person to thank for the Geek Feminism Wiki.
